Obtaining Norwegian police certificates


If you live abroad and need a criminal record certificate from Norway, an application must be sent to the Police unit for background checks and police certificates:

Politiets enhet for vandelskontroll og politiattester
Postboks 113
N-9951 Vardø

The application must include:

  • Application form
  • Certified copy of valid passport, drivers licence or bank card containing your photo and signature
  • Documentation of why you need the criminal record certificate
  • Signature of parent/legal guardian if you are under the age of 18

The Embassy wishes to advise that the Certificate may on request be issued in English, German, French or Spanish if no criminal offence is registered.
